This program will process one or more directories of MP3 files, and tries to fetch CDDB entry data assuming each directory contains the MP3 files for one album.

The files must be in the right album order when sorted.

The resultant CDDB entry data is written in the directory, under the name(s) .cddb00, .cddb01 and so on.
